Mr Whitlam asked the Prime Minister, upon notice:

(1)   What was the date of the establishment of each of the permanent interdepartmental committees listed in his answer of 12th June 1970 (Hansard, page 3674) to the question I placed on the notice paper on 25lh February 1969 and again on 4th March 1970

(2)   Which departments are represented on each committee.
